    I decided to go with a blood orange Belgium wit beer for my late summer batch. I have 6
    oranges, and was thinking of just going with the zest, no pulp. Do you all think 6 for 5

    My girlfriend grew a habanero plant this summer. It has been great in jelly. Thinking of
    putting it in a beer. Just drank my first ballast point. Liked it but would like mine to be
